These aren’t called fudge brownies for no reason! Low in sugar and high in protein, these rich brownies are gooey, sweet, and lip-smacking good – and let’s not forget about the dreamy chocolate PB icing made of only 4 ingredients.

I love how these brownies are super simple to make. Whisk, stir, pour and bake. I also love brownies. FUDGE brownies. I mean let’s take a look at them. Doesn’t it scream “eat me I’m fudgy”. I think if I were a dessert, being described as fudgy would be my ultimate goal in life. Fudgy brownies + melted chocolate chips + dreamy icing = make it asap and enjoy!

Notes

  • Look for a chocolate protein powder made of wholesome ingredients, like this organic plant-based chocolate protein powder.
  • I love this peanut powder because it’s made with simple, unrefined ingredients.
  • Choose chocolate chips or a chocolate bar made with unrefined ingredients, like these chocolate bars that my kids and I love!
  • To omit protein powder in the brownies, replace protein powder with an additional ¼ cup cocoa powder and ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • To omit protein powder in the icing, replace protein powder with 2 tablespoons cocoa powder and an additional 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
